RIVERVIEW — Gamers in the south county area just had their wish come true...Play N Trade has arrived in Riverview.
The father and son team of Troy and Dan Tyler completed their extensive training and now the doors are open to one of the most unique retail video game stores in the country.
Located in Summerfield Square, Play N Trade has set itself apart from the competition by delivering a new and interactive gaming experience for customers. Their “Try-Before-You-Buy” policy literally allows gamers to play any game in the store prior to purchase. The eight flat screen TVs around the store and in the “Player’s Club” can also be rented on an hourly basis. It’s also the perfect place to host in-store tournaments, birthday parties and other events.
“My vision for the store is to make it the ultimate place to hang out with other gamers, share stories and life with one another in a safe and family-friendly atmosphere,” says owner Troy Tyler. “PNT will be the first full-service video game store in town where all types of gamers can come to learn, share information and have experiences with each other while taking advantage of the best shopping experience in the retail video game industry.”
Tyler’s number one motivation for opening the franchise was to fulfill his dream of starting a family-owned business. Working side-by-side, the Tylers (both Riverview residents) along with other family members and friends, transformed the empty space into a wonder land of gaming electronics.
Along with the latest games for Playstation 3, PSD, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, Game Boy and Sega, there’s an area devoted to retro games, accessories and consoles. Play N Trade customers can also have their consoles and games repaired, as well as exchange their used games for store credit.
Other items for sale include batteries, HDMI cables, stylus’, memory cards, strategy guides, joysticks, etc.
It’s no doubt this will be a haven for gamers with easy access to communities in the Summerfield area, the actual address is 13163 U.S. Hwy. 301 South, Riverview, FL 33578, in Summerfield Square (near CiCi’s Pizza). Hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (813) 672-6200. To learn more about Play N Trade visit www.playntrade.com.
